Perfect bottle. Served blind at Chez Fitz. Young, red velvet, transparent. The colour is very Burgundian. Floral, red berries, spice box, "expensive oak". A little bit malolactic and a hint of fudge. With time in the glass it shows more meat and dark berries, blackberries. Very elegant taste. Medium body with an aristocratic poise, thus feminim and sexy. Fresh crisp acidity, soft silky tannins. Even if this La Mouline is made in a lighter style it got lots of energy. It is like a Tsunami that never hits the shore. The same kind I often find in Chambertin. To quote my friend; "A perfect combo of weightless power and elegance". I got this wine blind, and I was totally off. At first I was in Chambolle-Musigny (on the nose), and after my first sips I ended up in Gevrey-Chambertin! But this is what makes it so fun with wine! It makes me more humble too :-)
Great nose... floral notes, blackberry, and meaty, smoky tones. Less interesting on the palate and something of a hole in the middle. Medium bodied. Very acidic. Nice wine, but the palate/nose disconnect is huge.
Young, but open. Complex nose and palate of dark cherry, blackberry and powerful savoury notes: game, root veg, tobacco, mushroom... But even with those dark notes, it's not heavy. The acidity keeps it fresh and the tannins are elegant. Great balance, and a long, lingering finish.
Very young, burned rubber on the nose, one-dimensional first, then showing some chocolate, bacon, mushroom notes. Very intense, but painfully young, this seems to have some red sourness, but it is struggling to get through tons of rubber. Undrinkable (for me) now, though could be in time. Moderately tannic. Just a supercharged syrah yet. Very long.
